Despite the fact that I have eight zillion projects in progress, I decided I would cut out a new project. I'm making a flannel owl quilt for my friend Lily.
I bought a yard of this owl flannel several weeks ago on clearance at JoAnn Fabrics. At the time, I thought I would make Lily a pillowcase for Christmas.

I added a green flannel pindot for my background and a mottled green flannel for my connecting squares. Can you guess that Lily's favorite color is green?

Here I am with my two favorite 5-year olds, Lily and LarryPug. Lily is my friend Jeff's daughter. Jeff, Lily, and I have been going out to lunch together since she was an infant in her car seat. Even though I don't get to see Lily that often, she just picks up with me as if she had seen me the day before. The last time we had lunch together, she and I had a lot of fun making animals with raw bread dough. Lily admired my talents in making a turtle as well as a snowman.

my favorite 4-year olds. Check out Lily's rockin' leopard pants!
Hopefully I'll get Lily's quilt done for Christmas, while she still likes owls and the color green!
